A recent French story has highlighted Neymar's difficult time at PSG, including his arguments with teammates and his alleged loss of Kylian Mbappe's respect. Neymar ended his tenure at the Parc des Princes last summer after six years with the French powerhouses, having secured a lucrative transfer to Al-Hilal in Saudi Arabia. Some have said that the 32-year-old Brazilian international fell short of expectations during his time at PSG, and a shocking new article from L'Equipe has exposed the reasons why.

 The report claims that several alarming occurrences contributed to Neymar's final exit from the team. They talked to PSG employees and former players, who said that "at the end of his adventure, he sometimes showed up drunk at training."

Neymar dealt with similar accusations back in 2022, following a French journalist's remark that the Brazilian 'hardly trains anymore, he arrives in a sad state, nearly intoxicated.' The insider also revealed an alleged altercation between Neymar and one of the assistant coaches that occurred during Christophe Galtier's tenure with the team during training.

Neymar struck youth player Ismael Gharbi shortly after during the training, according to a witness, and then delivered a "blow to the head." They declared: "While he was on the ground, Neymar grabbed him and struck him in the head with a brush." All were taken aback. Ultimately, he wasn't all that pleasant. The publication further stated that Neymar was the driving force behind a brawl involving Sergio Ramos, Achraf Hakimi, and Lionel Messi on the training field.

According to the source, Messi and Hakimi fought before the Brazilian stood up to console his former Barcelona teammate. This was reported to L'Equipe. Ramos is reported to have calmed things down fast by telling Neymar, "If you get up, I'll come." The insider continued by describing how Neymar's connection with Kylian Mbappe, which was supposed to propel PSG to the top of the European league, finally soured. "Kylian liked Neymar at first, but after working with him every day, he lost the respect he had for him," a PSG staff member stated.


On the other hand, Neymar and Lionel Messi expressed displeasure upon realizing that the club had given Kylian the vehicle keys. Messi would say hello to you despite his introversion. "Not the Neymar. You got the feeling that he didn't think you were worthy. He declined to speak. It's unfortunate since he appears like a kind and giving person in private. He was never warm or friendly to me. He didn't try to speak French, even though he comprehended it.


Despite having the drive to play for his country, the Brazilian was 'fed up' with local football, according to the same source. Social media fans were startled to see Neymar on video playing online poker during his daughter's celebration earlier this week. The Al-Hilal celebrity and his former partner Bruna Biancardi brought their daughter Mavie into the world last year, and they just celebrated her six-month birthday.

"I have developed an intense love for the game since I started playing during the 2014 World Cup."I play aggressively when I play poker. My favorite hands are Jack-Five and a pair of tens, which I named after my shirt number. Poker and football have similarities in the ways you read your opponent and your play to decide when to attack. "I used to play it a lot while with Barcelona, and we play often at PSG," the player said. Neymar has not yet responded to the L'Equipe claims.

Kaka's former spouse discloses that the reason for their divorce was due to him being the ideal husband. In her own words, "I was unhappy; something was missing, even though Kaká never betrayed me and always treated me well. He also gave me a wonderful family." The issue was that I found him to be too flawless."


It is the fate of every ideal guy to be betrayed or rejected. Why? Because it becomes boring to be with a flawless man. Recall that women are naturally dramatic, therefore when a man is flawless, he deprives her of the drama she yearns for. When she is around other women, their conversation is limited to the turmoil that their male friends bring into their lives. She will now feel excluded since she has nothing dramatic to talk about. Women are masochists by nature; they like suffering.


There can be no pleasure in a flawless guy since he does not cause suffering. She desires a flawed man who would play with her emotions, making her weep, feel furious, depressed, and then joyful again. explains to you why women stay in toxic relationships longer than they do in secure ones. Why, despite his numerous attempts to harm her, a woman will continually return to her toxic partner? Why? It's not dull because it's not flawless.

Yesterday, Adeboye, Ebute-Metta delivered the admonition at the RCCG headquarters' monthly thanksgiving ceremony at The Throne of Grace. He spoke on the theme of "Renewed like Eagles," and he offered prayers for all dads, moms, single parents, widows, widowers, children, and adolescents who are with their families.

The National Social Insurance Programs Agency Coordinator, Halima Shehu, her predecessor, Sadiya Umar-Farouq, and suspended Humanitarian Minister Betta Edu have all been criticized by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), which also revealed that N32.7 billion and $445,000 have been recovered from ministries thus far. In response to rumors on the status of its investigations into the suspected financial embezzlement at the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management, and Social Development, the commission announced the development on Sunday via its official X Twitter.


"The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has noticed the rising tide of commentaries, opinions, assumptions, and insinuations concerning its progressive investigations into the alleged financial misappropriation in the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management, and Social Development," stated the statement, which was signed by EFCC spokesperson Dele Oyewale.


This is the EFCC's "Setting the Records Straight on Investigations of Humanitarian Ministry" statement. The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has observed an increasing volume of remarks, viewpoints, presumptions, and hints regarding its ongoing investigations into the purported financial theft in the Ministry of Social Development, Disaster Management, and Humanitarian Affairs. The Commission requested former and suspended Humanitarian Ministry personnel to participate in the initial stages of the inquiry, and thus far, N32.7 billion and $445,000 have been recovered from the purported fraud involving them.


Other fraudulent activities utilizing COVID-19 monies, the World Bank loan, and Abacha recovered wealth transferred to the Ministry by the Federal Government to carry out its poverty alleviation purpose have been revealed by the EFCC via discreet investigations. Investigations have also connected several Ministry officials who are under suspension and interdiction to the purported financial misconduct. It is important to emphasize that the Commission is not looking into any specific people. The elaborate network and system of fraudulent activities are being looked into by the EFCC. Investigations are underway into the accused banks implicated in the scam. The convicted banks' managing directors have provided insightful testimony to authorities looking into the violations. Those found in violation will face appropriate legal action.



Furthermore, no one suspected of being engaged in the scam has been exonerated by the EFCC. The investigations are still going strong. Any assertion to the contrary is hereby disregarded by the general public. The EFCC is grateful for the outpouring of public awareness, support, and engagement regarding the Commission's efforts to combat Naira misuse, the dollarization of the economy, and the enforcement of all relevant laws. The public is calling the Commission's attention more frequently to footage showing Nigerians from all walks of life abusing the Naira. These actions clearly show how the public is becoming more aware of the value of our national currency and the necessity of working together to keep the momentum going.

To achieve this, the Commission would always look into and bring charges against anyone responsible for Naira misuse. Since the Commission is cognizant of the fact that its Special Task Force against Naira Abuse and Dollarization of the Economy began operations on February 7, 2024, it notes that old films are being dug up and circulated for its consideration.

 Fresh footage of these violations will be looked into and brought to justice. The Commission is now looking into several celebrities who may have abused Naira. Numerous individuals have provided valuable testimony before the Commission, and numerous others have been extended invitations by investigators tasked with the case. The people should be cautious of breaking laws against crime because the EFCC would not back down from its no-sacred-cow policy.

The history department's professor Olutayo Adesina has been chosen to accept one of the highly sought-after British Academy Global Professorships for 2023–2024. The UI Don is one of eight professors chosen worldwide to research a variety of topics, including using food system models to address climate change and examining the history of West African communities via museum holdings.


Aiming to bring globally renowned academics to the UK to work on innovative research initiatives in a wide variety of pertinent areas, the Global Professorships are significant investigator-led grants. The chosen academics get financing of £900,000 for each four-year prize. The subject of Professor Adesina's study will be "the interplay of nationalist historiography, academic social science, and vernacular knowledge as mutually constitutive social epistemologies." He is also the President of the Society of Nigerian Archivists.


He will look at the degree to which indigenous, vernacular epistemologies influenced the work of academic historians and social scientists at the University of Ibadan. Ibadan was a city with a strong and unique intellectual and cultural character. This study examines how academic social science, vernacular knowledge, and nationalist historiography interact to form mutually constitutive social epistemologies for the first time.


The Academy's announcement on UI Don's proposed research stated, "The project combines a close study of key works in history and related disciplines such as sociology, anthropology, ethnomusicology, language, and literature with extensive interviews and fieldwork in the city of Ibadan, Southwest Nigeria."


After receiving his PhD from the history department at Obafemi Awolowo University in Ile-Ife, Nigeria, he joined the University of Ibadan's history department. From 2001 to 2003 and from 2006 to 2008, he was the Head of the Department of History and the Sub-Dean (General) of the Faculty of Arts.


The 2023 British Academy worldwide professorship has been awarded to Abubakar Sani, the former head of Ahmadu Bello University's (ABU) Department of Archaeology and Heritage Studies. These lecturers were two of the eight academics chosen to investigate a variety of topics, such as the application of food system models to address climate change and the examination of the historical background of West African communities through museum holdings. Tetyana Antsupova, Paul Behrens, Sandrine Berges, Karine Chemla, Saloumeh Gholami, and Ayelet Landau were among the other chosen scholars.

Oba Owolabi Olakulehin, the Balogun of Ibadanland, has been proposed to be the 43rd Olubadan of Ibadanland.  At the Olubadan-in-council meeting on Friday, April 12, at Olubadan Palace, Oja'ba, Ibadan, Olakulehin was nominated by Osi Balogun, Oba Lateef Adebimpe.

The Osi Olubadan, Oba Eddy Oyewole; the Ashipa Olubadan, Oba Abiodun Kola-Daisi; the Ekerin Olubadan, Oba Hamidu Ajibade; the Ekarun Olubadan, Oba Adebayo Akande; the Osi Balogun, Oba Lateef Adebimpe; the Ashipa Balogun, Oba Kola Adegbola; the Ekerin Balogun, Oba Dada Isioye; and the Ekarun Balogun, Oba Abiodun Azeez were among those present at the meeting.

High Chief Rashidi Ladoja, the Otun Olubadan of Ibadanland and the former state governor spoke to reporters following a closed-door meeting of the Olubadan-in-council. He stated that the appointment of the new Olubadan of Ibadanland has been completed, pending the state governor's approval.


He said the local administration would draft a letter and get it to the governor as quickly as possible, adding that they hoped the governor would approve it.

Jim Caviezel, who played Jesus in the 2004 film "The Passion of Christ," was hit by lightning during the film's last scene. Later, Caviezel said that the lightning hits required a lot of medicine in addition to two heart operations, one of which was an open procedure.


He was dumped on by someone and unintentionally whipped twice, resulting in a 14-inch scar on his back, and dislocated his shoulder from the weight of the 150-pound (68-kg) cross. and it caught fire in his hair during the crucifixion. He suffered from hypothermia and pneumonia as a result of the scenes of him hanging on the cross during the bitter Italian winter, which had 25°F/-4°C temperatures and 30-knot winds. He said that by the time the movie was over, he had dropped from 210 pounds (95 kg) to 168 pounds (76 kg). After the film was finished, he needed heart surgery.


Speaking about the lightning occurrence, Caviezel remarked, "I felt like a Christmas tree lit up."  I knew it would hit me about four seconds before it did, as I was giving the sermon on the mountain, so I stated I would get struck. And as it was happening, I witnessed the extras seize the ground in front of me. Five minutes after I was struck, Jon Mikalini, an assistant, approached me and said, "Are you okay?" before also getting struck. I said, "I can burn up or die, but I always think about it." The most embarrassing part of it all, though, is that Jon had already been struck when he approached me.


The chance will always be there for those who choose not to take it, and the best part is that it will follow them for the rest of their life. They will constantly be approached by people who want to talk to them about the movie they were in, and it will always trouble them.

This is how I feel: I think I was meant to play the part, even though I've always had doubts about my suitability. Although He doesn't always pick the best, He did pick me, and I had the chance to say yes. I did so, and when I looked up to call my fellow Americans and people around the globe, I told them that I wanted them to go out into the public and openly express their faith, which is exactly what I've done here.

When the judge inquired about his sex before the punishment, he promptly answered that he was a guy.

The contentious transvestite entered a guilty plea to the accusation of misusing naira.

On Thursday, April 4, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) filed six counts of money laundering and naira misuse against him.



Bobrisky was charged with six counts, including money laundering and abuse of the Naira, by the EFCC on Friday, April 5.

However, once he admitted to the crime, the court dropped the money laundering allegations against him but found him guilty of Naira abuse.

In one of the largest corruption trials in history, a prominent Vietnamese real estate magnate was found guilty and condemned to death on Thursday, with an estimated $27 billion in penalties. All of the defense arguments made by Truong My Lan, the chair of prominent developer Van Thinh Phat, who was found guilty of embezzling money from Saigon Commercial Bank for more than ten years, were rejected by a panel of three jurors chosen at random and two judges.

At the trial held in the southern economic center of Ho Chi Minh City, the ruling said that the defendant's acts "eroded people's trust in the leadership of the (Communist) Party and state." Following the five-week trial, 85 more people received sentences for offenses ranging from appropriation and banking law crimes to bribery and power abuse. While the remaining four received sentences ranging from 20 years to three years suspended in jail, four were sentenced to life.


Hong Kong millionaire Eric Chu Nap Kee, Lan's spouse, received a nine-year jail sentence. Lan stole $12.5 billion, but on Thursday, the prosecution revealed that the swindle had caused losses of $27 billion, or 6% of the nation's GDP in 2023. Lan, 67, was ordered by the court to provide nearly the whole amount of damages as compensation.


Even though the nation leads the world in executions, the death penalty is an exceptionally harsh punishment in this case, according to Amnesty International. Lan and the others were taken into custody as part of a nationwide campaign against corruption that has recently resulted in the arrest of a large number of politicians and prominent businesspeople in Vietnam. In her last statement to the court last Thursday, she seemed to indicate that she was considering suicide. She reportedly said, "In my desperation, I thought of death," according to state media.


"I am furious that I was foolish enough to enter this extremely competitive industry—the banking sector—about which I know very little." Demonstrations Following Lan's arrest in October 2022, hundreds of people started protesting in the capital cities of Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City—a rather uncommon event in the one-party communist regime.


About 42,000 victims of the fraud, which stunned the nation of Southeast Asia, have been identified by police. One of them is Nga, a 67-year-old resident of Hanoi who told AFP on Thursday that she had wanted Lan to receive a life sentence so she might live to see firsthand the suffering that Lan's acts had brought to common people.


Nga, who spoke under a pseudonym to maintain her anonymity, said, "Many people worked hard to deposit money into the bank, but now she's received the death sentence and that's it for her." "She is unable to witness the suffering of others." Nga hasn't been able to get her $120,000 back from SCB as of yet. Lan, who possessed a 90% share in SCB, was charged with fabricating loan applications to steal money out of the company. According to police, all of the scam's victims are SCB bondholders who are unable to access their funds and have not received any principal or interest payments since Lan's apprehension.


During the trial, the prosecution stated that they had taken possession of over a thousand of her possessions. Additionally, authorities claim that the $5.2 million that Lan and a few SCB bankers reportedly paid state officials to hide the bank's financial difficulties and infractions was the biggest bribe ever documented in Vietnam. Due to her acceptance of bribes, Do Thi Nhan, the former leader of the inspection team for the State Bank of Vietnam, received a life sentence. During the trial, she testified that the former CEO of SCB gave her millions of dollars in Styrofoam boxes.


Since 2021, more than 4,400 persons have been charged with more than 1,700 graft cases as part of Vietnam's anti-corruption campaign. Do Anh Dung, the leader of the Tan Hoang Minh company and a prominent Vietnamese luxury real estate magnate, was found guilty last month of defrauding hundreds of investors in a $355 million bond scheme and was sentenced to eight years in jail.
